President Barack Obama’s episode of “Running Wild With Bear Grylls” aired Thursday night, showing the President’s recent trip to the Arctic Circle to highlight the effects of climate change.

“One of the main purposes of our trip here was to highlights the effects of climate change and what’s happening to the planet,” Obama told Grylls. “People need to feel it and see it.”

A clip of Obama and Grylls eating bear-ravaged salmon aired on NBC’s “TODAY” in September.
